Trip Report Tuesday // WDW Day 11

One of my favorite days of the week is here, Trip Report Tuesday!  Today I'll take you along to sample snacks at the Food & Wine Festival,  share a bite {okay, actually a snapshot} of the meal that I rated "favorite entree" {of this trip}, then we'll wrap it all up with a nighttime spectacular!

Day 11 - Sunday, September 29, 2013

Good morning, EPCOT!

Creating"cars" and racing into a magical day!

The Imagination Pavilion

Jumping Fountain Fun!

Food & Wine Festival 2013

Getting our grub on, Disney style!

Our first sensational snacks from Food & Wine Festival 2013:  Chicken Potstickers, Black Pepper Shrimp with Sichuan Noodles, Mongolian Beef in a Steamed Bun - China Booth

Mommy/Little One International Date

Fun in the China Pavilion

After getting our Food & Wine Festival Marketplace Discovery Passports stamped for the first time, we split up for a few hours for one on one lunch dates with the kiddos.  Little One and I headed to one of our favorite spots in the World Showcase, United Kingdom!

Alice asked, "Where are you going today?"  Little One replied, "I don't know."   In her charming British accent she exclaimed, "Oh, dear!  It does sound like you are lost.  I do hope you find yourself!"

Lunch at Yorkshire County Fish Shop

Fish and Chips from Yorkshire County Fish Shop is a MUST!  Little One and I can never get enough of this place! We enjoyed a lovely lunch date, chatting, and eating sugar cookies the size of our heads! 

Meeting Duffy the Disney Bear

Isn't her joyful expression priceless?!  

While Little One and I were enjoying a jolly holiday in UK and snuggling with Mickey's teddy bear, Jason & Princess were chowing in other parts of the World {Showcase}.

Jason's Lunch:  Teriyaki Combo {Teriyaki Beef, Chicken, & Salmon} from Katsura Grill, Japan Pavilion
Princess' Lunch:  Hot Dog and French Fries from Liberty Inn, America Pavilion *They actually don't have a plain hot dog on the menu, but that's what she wanted so she ordered a Chili-Cheese Hot Dog with nothing on it.  Can you imagine? ;)

Hollywood Studios

Rock 'n' Roller Coaster
0 - 60 mph in 2.8 seconds?  Yes, please!  

Check out Little One braving the first seat! She claims she always closes her eyes in the ride photo because the light that flashes during the photo hurts her eyes. ;)

MANIA! Toy Story Midway Mania, that is!

PhotoPass Time!
Sunset Boulevard PhotoPass Pics

Much better :)

Love PhotoPass Magic Shots!

Dinner at Mama Melrose's, Hollywood Studios

"Daddy, can you pick me up so I can take a close up picture of Luke Skywalker?" asked the girl after her daddy's own heart.

I ordered the Charred Strip Steak with Five-Cheese Baked Macaroni {Aged Balsamic-Shallot Butter, and Chianti Wine Reduction} - AMAZING! I'd highly recommend it!  Jason had the Chicken Campanelle {Wood-grilled Chicken and Campanelle Pasta tossed in a Four-Cheese Sauce with Broccoflower, Sun-dried Tomatoes, fresh Spinach, and Sweet Onions}.  He wasn't too impressed by it and says he'll get the Oven-baked Chicken alla Parmigiana next visit, as recommended by the cast member that served us.  Princess ordered Spaghetti with her choice of Chicken and choice of sauce, Four-Cheese Sauce.  Little One had a lit'l Cheese Pizza.  The dessert shown is my Chocolate Cannoli Cake.  Mmm.  It was a delicious meal! 

Cheers for Fanciful Ears!

The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow
We love Pirates of the Caribbean and we loved this new attraction!  Adding to the fun of checking it out for the first time, Little One was chosen to be part of the show as the "Pirate Princess" who possessed the skeleton key!

"Send those bones to Davy Jones!"


Fantasmic! is my favorite Disney nighttime spectacular!  We always see it at least once each trip!

Mulch, Sweat n' Shears

Mulch, Sweat n' Shears - Rake & Roll at it's best!  The singer performed directly into Little One's camcorder for a bit that night!  It was hilarious! LOVE the many magical moments packed into each Disney day! :)

Hollywood Studios in Lights
Hollywood Studios is stunning lit up in night lights

  1. Mama Melrose's looks GREAT! So do the fish and chips! Disney has the greatest restaurants! Thank you for sharing your Disney love!!! :)

  2. What fun you have I so wish to go again and get some more memories! Love your photos!

  3. I loooove living vicariously through you :) We had soooo much fun at the Food and Wine festival! Our favorites were Italy and France for Creme Brulee! Also, how did you like Fantasmic? I remember they renovated it or something last year, and I haven't seen it since then, so did anything seem different?

  4. Way to go....a little girl that loves a chore! I am your newest follower.

  5. Apparently I'm behind on my Trip Report reading....
    So much packed into 1 day! All that food looks yummo!

  6. We love the Fish and Chips as well. Somehow I didn't try the cookies. Shame on me. The pictures of all of yall are beautiful. My favorite is the one with Jason and your girls so little one can take the picture of Luke Skywalker. The food at Mama Melrose looks wonderful. I will try that if we get back to Hollywood Studios.

  7. I also love the hot dogs as well as the cheeseburgers at the American Pavillion at Epcot.
